We've been hearing rumors for about a year that BMW's Rolls-Royce division was working up a new, smaller car to appeal to the ever-so-slightly less moneyed. Now, AutoWeek reports the new Roller could be in the offing, and soon. It's been no secret that that Rolls would react to slow sales of its Phantom in Europe with a new model priced similarly to VW's brisk-selling Bentley Continental range — and smaller than the HMS Phantom. Word is, the "baby" Rolls is expected to hit within four years' time.
